A Call for 50 Top Responsible Whale Watching Operators World Wide!


The WCA is growing! This year we are expanding our Partnership to bring in 50 Top Responsible Whale Watching Operators Worldwide!


Our Partners will represent the global leaders in sustainable tourism industry, operating to the highest standards and contributing vastly to the conservation of cetaceans.

Why Join the World Cetacean Alliance?


“To me the best part of being a member of WCA is to be able to attend the bi-annual conference and come face to face with partners, swop ideas and run and get involved in joint projects.


Being able to swap experiences with partners at their base of operation is also a highlight. Besides learning from each other, the experience is great!”

Lloyd Edwards, Raggy Charters SA – Partner
